U.S. rancher sued for violating illegals 'rights'

Right back at ya, Pancho

Holy freaking frijoles... An American citizen is being sued by unsuccessful illegal immigrants for their lack of success illegally immigrating. (A.k.a., defending his property from trespass, theft and vandalism. A.k.a. violating their civil rights.)
In March, U.S. District Judge John Roll rejected a motion by Mr. Barnett to have the charges dropped, ruling there was sufficient evidence to allow the matter to be presented to a jury. Mr. Barnett's attorney, David Hardy, had argued that illegal immigrants did not have the same rights as U.S. citizens.
You'd think so, wouldn't you?
Mr. Barnett told The Washington Times in a 2002 interview that he began rounding up illegal immigrants after they started to vandalize his property, northeast of Douglas along Arizona Highway 80. He said the immigrants tore up water pumps, killed calves, destroyed fences and gates, stole trucks and broke into his home.
If these people succeed -- and in Barack Obama's America, si, se puede! -- it's time to declare war on Mexico, then on our own wretched excuse for a government. (Actually, strike that, reverse it. To make Mexico City really sparkle we'll need artillery and aircraft carriers.)

I'm only half joking. Remember the Minuteman Project? When a bunch of regular folk started patrolling the border a few years back? They made a point of being non-violent about the whole thing, but as I recall, the original Minutemen had no problem pulling the trigger. Maybe it's time to live up to the name and take the safety off.

They want to fight this in the courts, let's fight it in the courts in a way that will be hard to miss. Defending our neighbors, our country and ourselves is a right, and if it's a right, it's arguably a duty.

This guy admits to personally detaining some 12,000 foreign nationals invading his land over the past decade. We should give him a medal -- and then put him in charge of ICE.

Chances are, though, the feds will put a gun to his head to the tune of $2 million, every penny of which will be headed right back into the cesspool.

Hire an illegal - go to jail.

Problem solved.

American employers are hooked like a crack ho on the cheap labor.

The Republican politicians who really stood up for controlled immigration were booted out of office faster than you can say "Hasta la vista, baby!" and their political opponents didn't get money to do that from the Mexican government.

So after we topple the guvmint and attack Meheeko can I drive a tank? A really, really BIG one, preferably with lasers and flame throwers on top?

Oh you're commanding a full Marine Expeditionary Unit, Mrs. P.
